The new fall yarns have been arriving all month, including new colors and weights of old favorites; some exciting new acrylic lines to go with all my wool lines; and just today, the new fall colors of Arne & Carlos Design Line sock yarn.
The Arne & Carlos Spring colors sold out the week they arrived and have not been available from my supplier since! The new colors are darker than the spring colors. Regia yarn is the hardest wearing sock yarn I sell. $17.50/100gm, 460yd ball...get yours before it sells out again!

ago I sold Wendy yarns and really liked the yarns, but over time their wool
yarns were no long available from my suppliers. Recently a sales rep was in
selling Wendy yarns, and they are shipped directly from the UK. Yeah! I
placed a small order to get started: the Wendy
Traditional Aran is 100% British wool. Ramsdale is made from 100% Yorkshire wool and also dyed, spun and balled in Yorkshire, England.
The white hat above is the
Traditional Aran, and
the blue is Ramsdale.
Both were nice knits! So happy the yarns are available again! Will dig
around and see if I have a Guernsey wool sample knit from the past, if not
will need to get a sample of that made up also.
The great thing about this company is they have lots of traditional aran patterns available - a few have come in, and more are on order...love knitting aran designs!

New from Skacel, DIY Knit-cessories. A cool necklace made of Addi needles, has a magnetized closure for easy wear, a great way to play with different yarns, display your swatches, just have fun! Would make a quick fun gift for your favorite knitter. They come with metal tips and bamboo tips.
I dug through my bag of glitzy yarns from the past and found four colors of unlabeled metallic yarns. My necklace is a 40 st. bias square and I used about 11 yards. I will wind off 15 yard lengths, if you want a small quantity of metallic yarn.
